The correct answer is: The electronegativity increases up and to the right Explanation: The electronegativity, the logo of χ, is a chemical property that explains the tendency of an atom to attract a shared pair of electrons towards itself.As you move from left to right in the periodic table the electronegativity increases, and as you move down the table, electronegativity decreases.
